CTPI at the Fringe! Mr. Darwin’s Tree now showing at the Playhouse

The Centre for Theology and Public Issues is co-presenting Mr. Darwin’s Tree at this year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Murray Watts’s acclaimed one-man show on Charles Darwin’s personal struggles over faith and science runs until Sunday, 21st August at the Playhouse at Hawke and Hunter Green Room (map, tickets). Andrew Harrison stars as Darwin in a piece that was commissioned by Theos, the London-based think tank. After its premiere in 2009, the director of Theos commented that

Murray Watts has done a magnificent job in ensuring that the play offers a faithful depiction of Darwin, drawing deeply on his diaries and correspondence, to get underneath the skin of the scientist.

In the coming weeks, Public Faith will have an interview with Murray Watts and more information on the show. In the meantime, see you at the Fringe!
